Judy Robertson says to Take Heart

In her Blog@CACM posting, Introductory Computer Science Lessons–Take Heart!, Judy Robertson responds to my blog about how we don’t teach CS well according to educational psychology literature.  She argues that Kirchner, Seller, and Clark are not directly speaking to our CS practices and goals (which may be true).  She also suggests that the practices that KSC recommends are those we already practice in CS education, e.g., use of worksheets and multiple worked examples.  That may be true at Judy’s institution, but is certainly not the case in most US institutions that I visit.
